After massive victory over South Africa in the 1st T20 match, now it is cleared that apart from Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan- it is Bhuvneshwar Kumar who is an energetic gear for team India in Test as well as limited-overs cricket. Right-arm-pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar picked up five wickets to set up India’s first victory over SA, in SA. Since he was rested in the final ODI against South Africa but no matters!!! He made a superb comeback in the first ODI and picked up five wickets and awarded as a man-of-the-match. During an interview, he said, “Credit has to go the team, the way we played in every department. If you look at the one-day series and now, yes, they’ve been weak, but South Africa is not that kind of a team. It happens to any team in the world when things don’t go your way, or plans don’t fall in place, but that doesn’t mean they’re a weak team or they’re not a good team.”Bhuvneshwar also speaks about team fitness by praising Bumrah for his tremendous effort at long-on. He said,”it is not easy without fitness. You can’t play in all three formats of cricket on a single tour”. Team Management is working hard, and our Physio is also doing great. In the first match “I used the slower deliveries to restrict the hosts at 175 for 9”. Although it was a batting surface and it helps India to totalled 203 in 20 overs.
Before 1st T20 South Africa did not lose any series in their host country, Now the 2nd T20 INTL will be played on tomorrow at Centurion, where team India will try to win this T20 Series while Proteas will try to designate their opening victory of this series. If they lose in the T20 series as well as One-Day Series, then it would be quite embarrassing for Proteas.
